Good morning, Guitarists!
I discovered that on August 7th (performance) and 8th (masterclass), Yuri Liberzon will be doing virtual sessions for my Utah State Classical Guitar Society. Since these are online, I would expect that you could participate from anywhere.
Here is the link for details: https://www.utahclassicalguitar.org/yuri-liberzon
I am fairly new to formal classical guitar (though have played guitar for years -- see my Welcome bio). Yuri's bio makes it appear that he is the consummate professional with mastery of the instrument. Have any of you had experience with him or heard him play?
Maybe I will see you there, online!
The second half of the recital is killer! Difficult pieces well played.
Oh, and you may have to wait for a minute before the program starts. Here are the numbers Yuri performed (some of the taught in Advanced Elite Guitarist):

The concert was GREAT! There is a link to the recording, though I don't know for how long it will be active. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ISg4BA8F-uk Give it a try. Dan
Thanks, Tavi! The President of the Utah State Classical Guitar Society, Cindy Spell, responded that it was wonderful that I had shared this concert opportunity to the students and faculty at Elite Guitarist. They are hopeful for a larger audience. Dan
Hi Daniel, thanks for passing on the information. I am not familiar with this guitarist but there is always something to learn from others. Keep the hard work!
